Do files/folders remain in the phone after deleting dropbox app (android)

Level 2

 Hello, 

Do the files/folders still remain after the dropbox app (android galaxy S8 ) is deleted? If so, how do I delete those local files/folder on the phone?

Thanks.

Hey @macinskim, if you unlink your account from the mobile app, your files should be removed and, as a result, you won’t be able to access them.

Hi, 

Thanks for the reply.

Deleting the dropbox app on the phone means "unlink"? If the device is NOT shown on the list in "Devices" (under "Security", "Settings"), it this meaning that the device is safely unlinked?

 

Best regards,

Hey Sang, if you can’t see the device under the Security tab on the website, then that would mean that the account is no longer linked to that device, and so it’s unlinked. Once you uninstall the mobile app, you’ll remove the app from your device.
